"Malone's voice is one of the most charming I've read. It brings the story and her characters to life. I feel like I grew up with Paula right over the hill from the lively little town of Sociable, Texas."
--New York Times bestselling author M. Leighton "Susan Mary Malone pens well-crafted characters that are so vivid you can picture them in an award winning movie or television series."
--New York Times bestselling author Mary Honey B Morrison". . . a magical story about love ripped apart, a life examined, and then healed. To be read slowly, to savor as one would a tall cool glass of lemonade, on a hot afternoon, watching the world become new."
--Ginnie Siena Bivona, author of Ida Mae Tutweiler and the Traveling Tea Party,
made into a Hallmark TV film, Bound by a Secret
From the Author
"It came to me in a dream. Winding up that magical hill, and then down into a town that time forgot. From there I fell onto Diana's porch, much as Paula Anne does in the novel, and listened to the myths and stories told there as El Duende
blew soul into the face of all us listeners. I was captivated by the stories, and began to write them down . . . "
